Starting the New Year Off Running

We ran the Resolution 5K in Beaufort, North Carolina on New Year's Day.  We ran the race last year in the pouring rain with about 19 other hardy souls.  This year the weather was much better, and there were about 100 runners out for either 5K or 1 mile.  The course is super flat and an easy out and back that goes down historic Front Street right along the water.  It is pretty scenic with lots of historic homes and of course the water views.  The premium this year was an awesome headband/earwarmer so a nice change from the usual shirt.

The kids and I had an OK run, not a best for either of them but good efforts overall.  We had a pretty good head wind for the first 1.5 miles so I think that effected us for the latter half of the race.  Zach ended up at 28:20.  Nic and I ran 30:20.  Zach placed third in the under 14 boys group so that was pretty awesome.

After that we headed off to our annual Penguin Plunge in Atlantic Beach.  The weather was pretty warm so the plunge wasn't too bad this year.  We had a great time and were happy to start the new year off running as a family again.

Next up is the Frozen 5K which promises to live up to its name.
